Good programs, with a good user interface, do not require reading the
manual to get going fairly well. If you don't know, can not guess, how a
certain feature works, surely the program will have a context sensitive
help key that will explain all you need.

Then, mc is one of those programs. Even OOo is in that class. True, a
manual for OOo would be nice sometimes, like for database operations; but
it is easy enough to start typing a letter and get it printed, more or
less the way you want, by trial and error.
